    Call Came In From Grandparent's Disconnected Phone Number

    From Reddit u/phospencer:

    My grandmother died in February 1996. She outlived my grandfather who had died in 1989. After her death, my father handled having her utilities disconnected, and the home and farm were sold pretty quickly. In 1999, I was running my family's newly opened business that was in a town about 120 miles north of where my grandparents were from and are buried.

    One day, when the phone rang, I couldn't believe what I saw on the Caller ID. It showed that the call was coming from my grandparents' long-disconnected phone number, and my grandfather's name was also displayed. When I answered, there was no one on the line. I have no explanation for how this happened.

    Friend Made Weekly Calls To Check In

    From Reddit u/Mysterylady234:

    My childhood friend died three years ago. Each week, I would get a call and a text from my childhood friend... she died from leukemia.

    She said she was calling to check on me. I freaked out so much. So I have been there.

    Phone Call From Long Deceased Aunt

    From Reddit u/Essexhaunted:

    When I was a kid, I picked up the phone with an old lady on the other side asking for my mum by name. When I asked who it was, she said, "Auntie May."

    My mum looked shocked and picked up the phone, but she was gone. She was brought up by Auntie May, only Auntie May had died in 1962...
